... his gs650 into my garage when I heard a crash. Dropped bike at mile .000001. Not a great start. Spend a few hours packing and munching on some left over pizza (thanks Lisa!) and Wade was feeling better. Two panniers and one duffle bag and we're all set. Good night sleep and an early start ...

This morning, a nice lady came by and asked to take a picture of Luke. She was capturing pics of all the pets at Camporama for the scrapbook.

Historical Traveler Reviews Schrute Farms Honesdale
Gives a good insight into beet production
The great thing about this place is that you can observe the whole process from planting to pickling.
The owner, whilst not overtly friendly, was very helpful and offered to sell us his crossbow. We declined (as we already have one).
I believe he may have a glass eye as I was not sure where to look.
This B&B is certainly unique. From the 7am recorder wake up calls to the dinner conversations on how to prevent bear attacks, to the moo-faced guy constantly wearing a tie all day long. My wife mentioned the guy wearing the tie is the owner, but he seemed to be constantly staring at us as if he was expecting us to steal the plastic-ware at breakfast.
Fact: Best Beet Farm stay ever
Fact: Schrute Farms is the only 60 acre beet farm that allows guests to perfect their hunting skills on the crossbow range.
Greatly Improved Accomodations
As a returning guest to Schrute Farms, I must note the new bathrooms, which represent a notable improvement over what I can only call a quaint, yet poorly dug, outhouse, which was in use during my last visit. This upgrade notwithstanding, I was pleased to see that in lieu of the ersatz Amish quilts, ubiquitously seen in area B & Bs, guests at Schrute can still sleep in toasty comfort under layers of native pelts.
Fine...if you like going to the bathroom under the porch!!
The owners (a man named Dwight and his cousin) are a bit odd, but nothing was as odd as the only bathroom...under the porch! A little warning would be nice. On the other hand, free use of paint ball guns and potato rifles were unexpectedly fun! Just be warned, the owner thinks he is a deputy sheriff and will watch you very closely.
Trick or Treat
Looking for a different place to stay during the Autumn leaf peeping season-Try Schrute Farms B and B. The place has a rustic feel to it. Not your typical B and B. No Victorian bedrooms, no frills-reminded me of my younger days visiting my grandparent's farm. Twin Beds, large breakfast consisting of eggs (hard boiled) and bacon and milk (beets optional)-typical farm fare. Enjoyed Mose tour of beet farming and Dwight's down to earth practicallity made this an unexpected travel experience. The atmosphere tied in with Halloween (I felt I had been tricked into a romantic nonexistent atmosphere. But in the end-it turned out to be a treat) Yes, next year it'll back to Cape Cod for the foliage, but my trip to Schrute farm was something I'll never forget.
Definitely will go back!
The best beet farm I've ever stayed at! Definitely recommended!
Schrute Farms delivers!
The architecture reminds one of a quaint Tuscan beet farm, and the natural aroma of the beets drifts into the bedrooms and makes you dream of simpler times. You will never want to leave your room. The informative lecture will satisfy all your beet curiosity, and the dawn goose walk will tug at your heart strings. Table making never seemed so possible. Great story to tell your friends. Plenty of parking! The staff's attention to detail and devotion to cleanliness was limitless. From their enthusiastic welcome to the last wave good-bye, Schrute Farms delivers.
Stay away - proprietor is crazy!
I have to warn people about the proprietor of Shrute Farms - he may portray himself as a gentleman farmer, but he is not what he seems!
He killed my cat, sprinkles!!!
Who knows what he might do to you or your loved ones....
